Your Personal Guide: The Patient Navigator

Tia DeSoto, the Patient Navigator for the Spine Program at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital, serves as a personal guide to patients who are undergoing spine care and surgery. She received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from Sonoma State University, as well as a Bachelor of Arts degree in Cultural Anthropology from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Tia is a native Santa Rosan and is honored to be able to serve her community as the Spine Patent Navigator for the Center for Bone and Joint Health.

The Spine Patient Navigator can provide you with a wealth of helpful information designed to make the entire surgical process as simple and comfortable as possible. Whether you have questions about pain management, medication, physical therapy, or community resources, the navigator is here to help you prepare for surgery, recovery, and beyond.
